1st Place Feature/Specialty Writing, from Western Newspapers, Inc. in 2006. Photos and article on black-footed ferret reintroduction near Seligman, Arizona.
March, 2006- I have been out in the middle of the night in the wild stretches of dry prairie near Seligman, Arizona, twice now. Both times I was searching for the rare and elusive black-footed ferret as part of the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Black-footed Ferret Volunteer Spotlighting program. The first time was for fun and the second time was for fun- and for this article, which won me 1st Place for Feature and Specialty Writing from Western Newspapers, Inc.!
At a later date I will add more photos and information here, perhaps including the entire article.
